Waiting for Carrasco

Morata, the previous winter signing in the rojiblanco team, for example, in the first month and a half under Simeone he had played 592 minutes, more than triple. Carrasco’s arrival was highly conditioned by the situation that the Atletico club was experiencing in January, weighed down by injuries, with Simeone without first-team players to make the calls. Faced with the absolute breakdown of the negotiations for Cavani, Carrasco was the final red-and-white option as he was a footballer capable of playing across the attack front, not just up front. Since last summer, Cholo has insisted on one thing: goals. That is what, for the coach, the campus has lacked since its construction. The parties proved him right. In the Champions League, he qualified for the quarterfinals after alighting the current European champion, Liverpool of Klopp that before measuring the rojiblancos seemed impossible, In the league he is currently sixth, with the lack of goals and draws like a stone in the foot. Ready for Luis LaLiga: the last ten gamesCarrasco conspicuously stood out in his second season at Atlético, in its previous stage. It was 2016-17, which ended with 14 goals in 56 games. Forever three moments: his match at the Camp Nou where Simeone first placed him as a striker and shone, all the compliments comparing him to Maradona, his three goals against Granada at 7-1 and his goal in the Champions League final in Milan.

Coutinho could be the great surprise of the Blaugrana market

first_imgThe football situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic could open the door to the option of Philippe Coutinho returning to Barcelona next season. The Brazilian, let’s not forget that he is the most expensive signing in the history of the club, He is playing on loan at Bayern Munich, a team that has already announced that he does not intend to exercise the right of purchase that was reserved by the footballer.At the Barça board they see the Brazilian as a key element in the market as a currency to hire players. The footballer himself has been responsible for filtering through his environment that his priority is to return to the Premier before Barça, but the Blaugrana coach has other plans.In an interview with RAC1 Setién said that the Brazilian is a player that he likes and that he has him for the next campaign.“I think Coutinho is a great player, I really like him. He is a player who is originally from Barcelona. You have to pay the clause or pay a sum to Barça. And also that he wants to return. I reckon I can be here at the beginning of next season. I have to speak to him to ask him. If necessary, I will speak to him, ”said the Cantabrian coach. Coutinho went to Bayern on loan in exchange for 8.5 million euros. The German team reserved a purchase option of 120 million, which has already announced that it will not be effective, which triggered that both the player’s agents and Barça began to look for a place for him in other leagues, especially England, where he maintains an excellent lineup after his time at Liverpool.Arsenal and Chelsea seem to be the teams that were most interested. Regarding the blue interest, it was speculated that Barcelona could include him in an operation to exchange him for midfielder Kanté.At Bayern, Coutinho has failed to regain the level he had in the Premier. He has played 32 games, but of the last ten Bundesliga games, he has only played two complete. In the Champions League, he only played 90 minutes three times. Still, he has scored nine goals and has given eight assists.When everything seemed on track for Coutinho to seek life in the UK, now Setién, who has never hidden that the Brazilian likes him and who is a type of player who adapts to his game scheme, will try to convince him to return to dress in Blaugrana the next campaign.last_img read more
